's visit to nevada prior to that, harry reid academy the presidential nominee on his religion. this is what reid said. he coming to a state where there is a lot of members of the church. they understand that he is not the face of mormonism. my first thought would be, some do you think you are the face of mormonism? i'm sure many people in the church hope not. without being disrespectful, it's not the intent of mitt romney to bring his own faith into this presidential election other than to affirm it's very important to him. i think he evidences that by what he does. when he released tax information 30% of his income away, biggest part to his church, i admire people that back up their beliefs with what they actually do. his particular faith is not the same as mine but i want people who practice what they preach. i would love to see people in office and frankly people who wanted credibility with me to demonstrate that what they stand for on sunday is also what they stand for the rest of the week. one way we find that out is how they invest even their resources. now, if you are going to bring
. that being said, it's amazing how much flack he's getting when harry reid made a similar comment about a presidential candidate saying that he had not paid his taxes. so of course i'm referring to governor romney. he said i have absolutely no proof of it but everyone took it as the gospel because it was senator reid saying it. so i think there's a double standard there. [ overlapping speakers ] >> the fact of the matter he's never released his taxes. he had an opportunity to put the real information out there. >> senator reid said he had no proof that this was the case. that's what he said. [ overlapping speakers ] >> i'm saying here's the point. jack welch said he didn't have the resources. he had no proof, either. and i'm saying it's equally irresponsible for him to say it just as it was irresponsible for harry reid to say it. >> one second. morris, i'll get you on. molly, folks from the romney camp, are they publicly staying above the fray on this matter but privately are they not doing anything to discourage this talk? >> i don't think this makes romney look good at all to have thi
and to the republicans, and then you pull back because nancy pelosi and harry reid say don't do it, and now you're attacking republicans for proposing exactly what you proposed to them, and bob woodward has in a document! >> well, i have a healthy suspicion the moderator's probably read bob's book. and he's a great moderator. that's why i think this debate will be fascinating because i think there are some really good questions that you've just raised that will be raised tonight. >> and by the way, you can also ask mitt romney, mike barnicle, why is it that you're not proposing any reform for medicare and social security? >> you know, this discussion is actually kind of fascinating when you listen to it because it gets to, i think, one of the larger points about this election. if you put your ear to the ground, not in washington, not to politicians or other journalists, if you put your ear to the ground, you get the sense that this election really is about the american people asking one question of both candidates, where are you going to take us, and how much is it going to cost? and that's wha
a year and move the detainees to the states. but it was pelosi and harry reid who said you can't use any federal funds to move guantanamo detainees to the united states and you can't use funds to buy or rehab a facility in the united states. jamie: why acquire it? >> there is overcrowding in some federal facilities. this is a well-built relatively new facility. it's been sitting dormant. i take them at their word that they want to utilize it to ease overcrowding and to bring jobs to the area. but the scepticism that some have is that the obama administration will make an end run around federal law, democrats and republicans, and try to close gitmo on the chief. jamie: there is so much overcrowding of the state prisons that the governor is releasing some prisoners locally that should potentially be behind bars, residents of illinois may argue. why not leave that opportunity or even assist the state government in acquiring it -- and there is no mention of that at this point -- may i confirm with you and take it for themselves, the feds. >> great question. one that i hope members of the med
. it gets to the senate and you have harry reid and nancy pelosi out there that want to do nothing but tax. guest: thanks so much for your call. there is a real wide range of ideology out there with the youth vote. many other young people would agree with him. we really need to push back against the status quo because the diversity of youth is not just the millennial. s. 40% of young people 18-29 years old will not have any college experience. we assume that all young people are college students, we are discounting the voice of a lot of young people. there are young people who have voices to bring to the table. this is a situation that the republican party is facing which is how to bring young people who are inclined to agree with them into a place where the republican party can have a long-term future with the young people who think a lot like them. seeing interesting things in 2012 in the ways in which the republican party is reaching out to young people. maybe the republican party needs to think more deeply about what they will do in the future. host: what do you make of the youth vote
through something that you and nancy pelosi and harry reid thought was the best answer descroaf it through. 80% democrat, we were together. 200 legislators in my legislature only two voted against the plan by the time we were finished over differences we didn't raise taxes. you raced them by a trillion dollar under obamacare. we didn't cut medicare. we didn't have medicare. we didn't cut medicare. we didn't put in place a board that can tell people what treatments they are going receive. we didn't also do something that i think a number of people across the country recognize this which is put people in a position where they lose the insurance they had and wanted. right now the cbo said up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obamacare goes in to affect next year. like wise the study by mckinsey and company of american businesses said 30% of them are anticipating dropping people from coverage. for those reasons for the tax, medicare, for this board, and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want medicare and don't want obamacare. it's why repu
as to why the dream match did not pass in 2010, senator harry reid laid the blame at the feet of republicans. but there were five democrats who did not vote for the tree back and they had to fight on boats. had those five voted, the dream that passes. -- the dream act passes. why have democrats not been sufficiently taken to task for that? of forgetfect example party, here is an issue we care about as opposed to the letter in front of or behind art is? >> that is an interesting -- behind our neighbors. >> i think democrats need to stop playing defense and playing offense. they have not been willing to spend political capital it requires. on the other hand,
